Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.0
Well, JAD seems to work fine with the freshly downloaded file.  But I'll have to see later whether it gets deleted again, next time I check for updates.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.0
Looks like the main files are now verifying properly.  However, I now suspect that there are multiple versions of mod.ini being put in the same place.  One of them, at least, belongs to the Freespace Port Mission Upgrade.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.0
Mh.. shouldn't be. I updated the Mission Upgrade a few days ago, but the hashtest in FSO was successful and the mod.ini is still in the fsport-mission-upgrade folder and there is only one of it. No idea  :confused:

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.0
4 days ago I helped a friend install FSO through the installer. 2 days ago he got notified by his ISP that they detected abnourmal behavior from his connection and suspected a trojan infection. (And yes the letter from his ISP is legitimate, they do send them out over here, when they detect weird stuff happening.)

Could this be related to the installer activity or does the likely have a different (serious) issue?

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.0
The installer shouldn't cause that kind of warning since it only sends HTTP(S)-Requests which is exactly your browser does. It doesn't behave exactly like a browser and you could detect it by scanning your internet traffic but I don't know why your friend's ISP would call it "abnormal behaviour". Most likely they detected traffic to known C&C servers or ports commonly used by trojans. If that's the case, the warning is warrented and you should make sure that your friend's computer(s) aren't infected.

Thanks for the reply. He kinda was hoping it would be the downloader, because otherwise he'd have to start looking for who knows what that is causing this, which he'll now have to do.

But I would have been surprised myself, as I've used the downloader a couple of times and never had any issues with it myself. But last time I used it was about a year ago so I thought I'd pop in any ask if anything changed.

In any case, thanks!

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.1
I have an issue:

In my installer list (after clicking 'custom' when the Installer came up), there's three options for "Silent Threat:  Reborn Cutscene Pack" (480, 720, and 1080).  It has 720 selected for me but I would like to upgrade to the 1080 option.  However, those ST:R choices are greyed out meaning I can't select them.  How do I get the 1080 one?

In a similar fashion "FSPort Media VPs 2014" and "3.6.12" are greyed out with 720 HD cutscenes selected so I can't upgrade to 1080 there either.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.1
There should be an fsoinstaller.properties file in your home directory.  Remove the lines relating to the options you want to redownload and rerun the installer.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.1
PIe has the right answer.  The lines will look like these:

Code: [Select]
FreeSpace\ Port.Silent\ Threat\:\ Reborn.Silent\ Threat\:\ Reborn\ Cutscene\ Pack\ (720p)=Version 1.4
Code: [Select]
FreeSpace\ Port.FreeSpace\ Port\ Media\ VPs.HD\ Cutscenes\ by\ MjnMixael\ (720p)=Version 1.0
Just search for 720 and you'll find them.  Delete the entire lines, but nothing else.  Make sure the Installer isn't open while you're editing the file.

I found the file you're talking about and I clicked on it to open it but Windows said it couldn't open that file.

It's just a text file with a different extension, so you can use Notepad++ or your favorite text editor.

Do I do anything with the file called ".JarClassLoader" that's right above the file you two have told me about?

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.3.1
.JarClassLoader is used internally by the FSO Installer.  It wasn't mentioned by either PIe or myself, so don't worry about it.
